Hearts, Flowers and Lace

Hello Maggie Fans,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. They just seem to fly by. Today I got some upsetting news about my sweet friend Kathy. If you could keep her in your thoughts and prayers this week that would be wonderful.

I had a great time making this card. I wanted to do an easel but not a boxy one. So I went online and found a heart template that I used for the base of my card.  I am pleased with the way my designed turned out.

Here are a couple of closer views:

Below are the goodies I used to create my card:
Maja Paper
Magnolia Paper
Cryogen Paper
Copic Markers: Skin E000, E00, R20; hair E40, E41, E42, E43, E47; tights R0000, R00 (added some polka dots), shoes R37, R39 then I added a touch of liquid glass to her shoes. The candy was colored with R0000, R01, R81, R83, R37, R39, E25, E42.
I chose to paper piece the candy boxes, her dress and bow to give the a softer vintage feel.
I used a satin and lace trim around the heart. lace under the heart, and some lacey floral time on the front of the base of the card.
I chose matching and contrasting ribbon.
Flowers and pearls
La-La Land Heart Banner and Corner Die
Cherry Lynn -Lace Doily Heart Die
Magnonlia Tea Label Die
Memory Box La Rue Heart Die
And Magnolia Circus Tilda
